An elderly couple have thanked two Good Samaritans who rescued them when their car got stuck in heavy rain.

Allan and Helen Woods (both 83) had been driving home from Oban when their car hit a pavement in Lennoxtown, blowing out the front tyre.

The pensioners, from Kirkintilloch, had feared they would be stranded until two strangers in a white van came to their rescue.

Helen, who broke her hip five months ago, said: “We would never have got home if it was not for them.

“We’re so thankful, it was so good of them.”
